Environment for a sustainable future

Plasticolor manages many different production technologies, all with different environmental characteristics and challenges.

Most of Plasticolor’s operations are strictly regulated by laws, regulations, and permits – on global, EU, national, regional and local levels.

But Plasticolor’s environmental work has larger ambitions than complying with existing regulations. Plasticolor considers environmental responsibility to be the very foundation for sound business development, which improves the company’s competitive position and protects the value of current as well as future assets.

Since 2013 Plasticolor has been part of “Bra Miljöval” started by Vattenfall and Naturskyddsföreningen in Sweden. This program is striving to reduce the environmental impact from energy production.

When Plasticolor heard of the program “Bra Miljöval” we saw this as the crossroad to take a decision about the legacy we leave behind.

 


 

Plasticolor works towards a long-term strategy to prevent unnecessary environment damage.
This means, for example, that the waste will be sorted and taken for recycling or destruction.
The destructive material are burned in a combined power and heating plant.
Plasticolor shall follow all relevant laws and regulations in the environmental legislation.
